    What I have now is:

    Wii US
    Wiikey
    Wiikey 1.2 Config Disc
    GC memory Card
    SD CARD 2G x 1
    MicroSD 1G x 5

    Paper Mario JP ver

    I want to back it up myself, can a 1G/2G SD Card backup or I have to use a 8G SD Card to backup Wii Origianl

    P.S.: I have no LG Drive and please downt ask me to download because this is not yet release and download a 4.7G files take me too much times

    You can split the file. Use one of your 2GB SD cards. But don't split the file over different SD card, it makes bad dumps, just keep using the same SD card that you started dumping with.

    You will also need an SD Gecko adapter (or make your own). You don't use the SD slot on the Wii but rather the gamecube memory port.

    I dont know much about the things you need but the proccess should be the following:

    - format SD
    - dump part of game to SD till its full
    - copy this dump (part1) to PC
    - DUNNO IF YOU NEED TO FORMAT SD OR IF THE PROGRAM DOES IT BEFORE CONTINUING
    - dump another part of game to SD till its full
    -copy this dump (part2) to PC

    In the end when you have the game divides in several parts, you just have to join them into a .iso
